Tattoo Hand Lettering Sketch


I was commissioned to create a tattoo design and this is the rough concept I submitted to my client. They request was for the words, "Love God, Love People," with the text itself creating the outline of a heart.

It took a bit of playing around, especially since the longest word was in the smallest portion of the shape, but I think I roughed something out I can move forward with. I'm definitely not an expert at hand lettering so I would love and appreciate any feedback.

Once I get the sketch finalized I plan on taking it into Illustrator to create a nice piece of vector art for the client to take to the tattoo artist. I'm debating whether I should keep the letters solid or add some embellishment to them.
